We asked our volunteers what the positives are about lockdown for them and they came up with a quite a few.
It shouldn’t have be a surprise that spending more time with family was high on the list of positives.
Spending more time with my Dad and having more time to sleep. Aisling (18) Meath
Spending time with my family, having time to write and having the time to figure stuff out about my future. Amina (17) Meath
I find that there is more family time, and everyone has had to slow down from a busy lifestyle. I have been calling my cousins and spending time with my family more than I would normally. Annemarie (20) Meath
Spending valuable time with my family and focusing on myself. Emily (18) Donegal
Spending time with my family. Getting through college work. Yvonne (24) Limerick
Being able to spend more time than I normally would at home with my family. Ruth Clare/Galway
Spending more time with family. Realising which countries I might move to later. Maybe NZ! Keith (24) Dublin
I get to see my family more than I would if I were in college in normal circumstances. I have more freedom in terms of when to get up in the morning, go to bed at night, etc. I don’t have to be up in time to go to college lectures. Dylan (21) Offaly
